Abstract: While the construction of the Channel tunnel was an engineering triumph, the project also had its share of cost overruns, inadequately prepared contract documents, and disputes over safety and oversight. Four veterans of the project, two Americans and two Britons, discuss their frustrations and satisfactions: Peter Middleton, an executive of the tunnel's Maitre D'Oeuvre; John D. Noulton, director of administration and public affairs for Eurotunnel, the project's owner; Jack Lemley, who headed up construction; and Frank J. Cain, a Bechtel draftee who was Eurotunnel's chief executive for the project.
